## About Me

I am a Ph.D. candidate at the University of Nebraska–Lincoln under the
supervision of

Dr. Jamie
Radcliffe. I anticipate graduating in May of 2020.

My primary research interest is the study of properties of large
networks. In particular, I use the tools of extremal and random graph theories
to find guaranteed or typical properties of networks with sufficient size or
other characteristics. As an undergraduate I was also interested in the fields
of computational complexity and computability.

In 2017, I received a Master of Arts in Mathematics from the University
of Nebraska–Lincoln.

In 2013, I graduated from Carnegie Mellon University with Bachelor of Science degrees in Computer Science and Discrete Math and Logic.
